Way late to the party, I know! The Kydd books by Julian Stockwin deal with a pressed man's rise through the Navy hierarchy to Admiral and the first four books are set during the main character's life on the lower deck. They are, in order, Kydd, Artemis, Seaflower and Mutiny.

If you don't mind reading Young Adult/teen books, you might also like Powder Monkey and Prison ShipBattle Fleet is told by him after he becomes a midshipman.)

There is also Victory by Susan Cooper (Of The Dark Is Rising fame), which is a two-part novel following Sam Robbins, a young boy pressed into the Navy, and a young girl, Molly, who moves from modern-day England to America and begins to grow interested in Nelson's navy.
